Burlesque was born in England and the term “burlesque” referred to variety show performances. These shows were very popular from the 1860s all the way through the 1940’s. Staged in cabarets, clubs and theaters, burlesque shows featured bawdy comedy and female striptease.
Although there were some burlesque shows in the United States, it was toward the end of the 1900’s, that these shows really flourished in the states. They featured comics, but the main attraction was women singing, dancing and posing in exotic, sexy costumes. Recently there has been a revival of burlesque as more and more people are attracted to the glamour and the wonderful burlesque costumes.
However, this year, in 2011, it was the movie Burlesque that skyrocketed the popularity of burlesque dancing and costumes. The movie featured the talents of Cher and Christina Aguilera, who, along with other dancers, performed several exciting and provacative performances. Check out the video below. keep reading

Static Cling Halloween Costume
To start the look, wear any kind of mismatched clothes. Fold one tail of your blouse or shirt up onto itself and secure with double stick tape or a safety pin. Pull up one pant leg and pin in place. Using double stick tape or pins, attach a few dryer sheets to your clothes. Also attach socks, small towels, handkerchiefs, pillow cases, underwear and other small items one might have in the dryer. Use hair gel to make your hair stick up like it is full of static.
Deviled Egg Halloween Costume
Wear all white clothes. Paint a yellow circle on your stomach, or cut out a yellow circle out of felt or construction paper and attach with double stick tape, glue or safety pins. Wear devil horns and carry a pitchfork to complete the devil look.

Dyeing your skin green as part of a Halloween Costume may sound a bit weird. But trust me, I have done it dozens of times with no ill effects (at least that I have noticed). And having green skin definitely makes your costume more interesting and gets attention.
Why green you ask? I have tried other colors, but green looks especially strange and exotic. And green skin lends itself to lots of Halloween costumes. Witches and Vampires with green skin are scarier and of course all alien costumes will benefit from green skin- E.T. anyone?
Here are some other costume ideas that are good with green skin:
Jolly Green Giant – just create a over-the-shoulder one piece, and add some artificial (or real) leaves with glue.
Green Man – Include leaves and other natural items on your costume and carry a wooden staff.
Peas in a Pod – Green skin, green outfit, and green balloons glued down the front of your chest 0r back.
The best costumes for this shows off some of your green body. People will often ask, “Are you green…all over?” You just wink and smile.
